Highly ranked junior golfers Yi Keun Chang from Walnut, Calif., Michael Moorhead from Newport Beach, Calif., and Andrew Levitt from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., have signed National Letters of Intent with USC, Trojan sixth-year head men's golf coach Chris Zambri announced Monday.
"I am extremely excited to be bringing in a super strong 2012 class," Zambri said. "All three student-athletes have shown the ability to step up and win tournaments throughout their junior careers. Each will make big contributions to our program over the next four years."
